The Skuttle A04-1725-051 Humidifer Water Panel with Wick is the correct replacement evaporator pad filter for Skuttle flow-thru models 2001, 2002, HFT2700 and HFT2900FP humidifiers. This Skuttle humidifier evaporator pad measures approximately 10" x 16-1/2" x 1-1/2", but may vary up to 1/8". This Skuttle water panel is made of layers of an aluminum mesh with a porous pumice-like coating. The coating allows the water panel to absorb water. The coating will be loose when used, and can be rinsed off. The white felt-board wick that is included ensures even water distribution. The aluminum can be recycled, when it is time to discard the filter.
Skuttle humidifiers are whole-house humidifying systems designed to be installed on a forced air heating system for an office or a home. Optimum efficiency and performance of the humidifier system depends upon tightness of your home, the hardness of your water, as well as many external factors.

For best efficiency and performance, it is recommended to replace this evaporator pad every 12 months, or every 6 months depending on use. Hard water causes calcium deposits to build up on the pad and drum, and result in an increase in filter replacement frequency. The manufacturer is correctly called Skuttle, but may also be referred to as Drumatic.
